Course Description

Are you an ACT clinician looking to build your knowledge and skills in ACT Supervision?

Have you considered offering supervision but weren’t sure where to start?

In this workshop, ACT Supervisors Sally Bradley and Jim Lucas will teach you how to deliver an ACT-consistent approach to supervision and consultancy.

You will learn the SEED four-phase ACT supervision model, which builds on existing supervision research in contextual behavioural science (CBS) to support the growth of ACT knowledge and skills.

You’ll discover how to:

  • Create a SAFE and supportive learning environment.
  • EXPLORE functional analysis to guide interventions.
  • Apply EXPERIENTIAL methods.
  • Implement DELIBERATE practice through skills development plans to help ACT practitioners build their competencies.

The trainers aim to give you a clearer understanding of how to deliver ACT consistent supervision. You can expect an experiential approach that mirrors the application of ACT therapy. They’ll help you think about your client’s context and invite you to observe and reflect on your context and how it impacts the therapeutic and supervisor relationships.

Over two consecutive sessions, you’ll explore the supervisory process through demonstrations, group exercises and personal reflection. You’ll practice shaping psychological flexibility so that you feel ready to begin offering ACT supervision.

Following completion, you will have a straightforward process for helping clinicians build their competencies, so you can continue your journey toward becoming a more effective ACT Supervisor.

Who would benefit from this workshop?

  • ACT Practitioners with more than two years of experience who want to improve their knowledge and skills to deliver ACT-consistent supervision
  • Practitioners seeking a workshop that, through experiential learning, aims to build their supervision competence
  • Practitioners who have supervisory responsibilities
  • Practitioners who want to start offering consultancy/supervision soon

The workshop is unsuitable for practitioners without applied knowledge of ACT

Bonus content

  • Companion eBook ACTivating your Supervision.
  • Four weekly focused emails will be sent after the completion of the course. Each email will recap and build on knowledge and skills introduced and further invite delegates through practical exercises to deliberately develop their supervisor skills incrementally.
